RCRA Online Number:13297
Date:06/26/1989
To:Barbour
From:Carra
Organization of Recipient:Nuclear Metals, Inc.
Description: Activities that do not require a permit include: recycling, resource recovery, totally enclosed treatment, and treatment in a generator’s accumulation tank. EPA is not planning to modify storage rules to allow generators to hold radioactive mixed waste on-site for radionuclide decay beyond 90 days without a permit (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 63464; November 12, 1999). EPA and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) are developing guidance to integrate regulations on radioactive mixed waste storage. EPA and the NRC agree on dual manifesting of mixed waste. Hazardous waste can be shipped to a designated facility in a state that does not regulate that waste as hazardous. EPA does not require a transporters to obtain permits, but States may do so. States may list used oil as hazardous waste.
